Safaricom PLC on Thursday, May 9, announced a Sh139.9 Billion in its earnings before interest and tax in the period ending March 31 st 2024. 

 Kenya telecoms operator Safaricom said on Thursday its group earnings before interest and tax, excluding Ethiopia, was 139.9 billion Kenyan shillings ($1.07 billion) in its full year to end-March.
